This leather music journal is fully customizable, and MADE TO ORDER. You design your journal with the drop-down menus above, and may also add further customizations if desired from the "More Customizations" section. This journal is made JUST FOR YOU.


This journal is from my Specialty and Niche Journal section, as it is made specifically for musicians and songwriters!



Each journal is hand-picked, hand-cut, and every page is hand-folded and sewn together.

-Quality leather: durable, full-grain, USA tanned leather.
-Acid-Free Paper: Thick, high quality, and acid-free paper, so your memories and artwork stand the test of time.
-Waxed linen thread: High-quality, thick, waxed linen thread that will keep your journal securely bound for a lifetime.

✔️100% USA-MADE
All of our leather is USA tanned leather. And all of our journals are made in Idaho, USA.

You choose your page layout from the 2 options below:

"ALL STAVES" = Pages are filled with only musical staves on each page throughout the book.

"BOTH" = Pages include musical staves on one side of the page spread, and lined pages on the other side. This could be for writing lyrics alongside your staves, or for writing notes.

Choose your page layout option in the drop-down menu.



This handcrafted and hand-bound journal features a half-length fold over flap with a wrap-around leather strap enclosure. The outcome is a beautiful vintage and rustic look and feel. This journal is a great gift for any musician or songwriter in your life any time of year, especially as a birthday or a Christmas gift. All of my books and journals are made to last a lifetime (at least!) And the durable, high quality leather only gets better with time.



SEWN BOUND - This journal is hand-bound using a historical bookbinding technique of sewing the pages into the spine, which gives a lovely old-world look and feel. This binding method is durable and permanent.



We use an old-fashioned style of personalizing your leather, called Embossing. Heat is pressed into your journal cover, leaving a gorgeous and rustic looking imprint that is permanent.

•See examples of embossing throughout the listing photos on any listing.

•If you select the option of personalized embossing from the drop-down menu, that will include up to 15 characters of embossing. Please enter your personalization in the Personalization Box.

•If you would like additional characters, you may add the listing entitled "Additional Embossing" to your order; located in the MORE CUSTOMIZATIONS section.

•Alpha-numeric font is all caps, Times Roman.
Special characters available include: . ' , # @ ? ! " $ % & * : > < ; / \ •Names, initials, etc, typically go in the lower right corner by default on most journal designs; unless your specific journal design, size, and personalization length warrant a different location. If you have a specific location you would like your embossing to go, you must message me or indicate the desired location in the order notes. If specific instructions are not left by you, formatting and location discretion will be left up to myself, and determined by what is most appropriate given your specific journal design and personalization.



Sizes are all in inches.

5x7, 6x9, 8x10, 9x12



Check out the MORE CUSTOMIZATIONS Section of my shop, where you will find the listing "Additional Pages" and you can add as many extra pages as you'd like. 



Our leathers are USA tanned, premium hides chosen for their rustic yet beautiful character. Please see the last photo in each listing to see an example of a journal in each leather; and also in the listings photos throughout the whole shop. After working with hundreds of various hides and types of leathers, these are the leathers that we weren't able to say goodbye to. Due to the nature of the authentic leather hides, there will always be variation and uniqueness from one journal to the next. Each hide will have some degree of "pull-up," which refers to color variation where the leather is creased or bent; which gives a very rustic or distressed look. Pull-up creases go away with time or with rubbing the leather by hand. Following are descriptions of our leather varieties:

RUSSET - A golden medium brown leather with some color variation between lighter browns, golden, and sometimes reddish tones. Beautiful light golden tan pull-up when leather is creased.

BISON - A medium-dark brown with gorgeous tan pull-up marks where the leather is creased.

DRIFTWOOD - This leather has a ton of color variation between lighter tan to medium brown to darker brown areas, all along the spectrum of sandy and woodsy brown color tones. Some hides will be more covered in the darker brown, but color range and variation is similar. These hides have a very pronounced pull-up effect: you will notice very pronounced color variation in areas that are creased.
